Hey all, Hope someone can help here !
I still use a sony HDR-FX1e which only produces interlaced footage, I've always had 'issues' when it comes to de-interlacing this footage until Hitfilm 3 arrived, it's de-interlacing tool for my footage is rather spectacular compared to any other method I've used in the past. This unfortunately led to a new problem on the timeline.
My footage is encoded using the Cineform codec, If I try to use Hitfilms tracking tool to track something in the scene on my nice de-interlaced footage I get a rather large problem as in the layer window where trackers are positioned etc, the de-interlace filter is not applied. If there is any significant movement in the scene then my clips are useless for tracking due to the interlaced 'stair' effect common with interlaced footage.
Does anyone have any thoughts on how I can deal with this issue ?
Is there a way to 'Bake' the de-interlacing effect on the timeline to my clips as I would really hate having to render each clip one by one and have to loose my current Cineform compression ?
Any advice will be greatfully received
